I look back with a mix of emotions: sadness for the people who are gone, nostalgia for times that have passed, but immense gratitude for the wonderful opportunities that came my way.
The only honest reaction and true loyalty that we get is from our animals.

We're feeding all these zoos. And that's getting bigger and bigger.
I love cats.

The only honest reaction and true loyalty we get is from our animals. Once they're your friends, you can do no wrong.
From the time I was 8 years old I was on almost every radio show there was.

You're working with the same people, and there's a lot of recognition. I like to do series best. I really do.
I remember how my mom would take me on the subway from Queens to Broadway. We'd go to the offices of casting agents. Many doors were slammed in our faces. I was just a boy, but I remember that well.
I wasn't worried about unemployment.
